The Phish-bashing threads make me wonder..does the GD get based a lot on Phish forums?

Nah, I'm not a Phish head. But hey, I hope my poor writing skills don't reflect poorly on other GD fans :)

cilb -

I had no idea what you were talking about....then I went back and saw the typo in your OP. Believe me, I did not see it, I read right through "based" v. "bashed" - and as such, my comment was not directed at you.

But now that you pointed your error out.......

Drop and give Rob 20 push-ups.

That's funny...I didn't see the typo until I read your post!

Ok, 20 push-ups on the way!

I occasionally read a Widespread Panic forum that a friend recommended. There was a thread recently titled. "Who DOESN'T like the Grateful Dead?" Most were in favor, but a surprising amount admitted to not liking the boys. Of course, WSP has an entirely different sound.

My buddy, a big fan, cannot understand why I haven't gotten on their bus so to speak. Lord knows I've tried - they're basically local for me, but I just isn't working out between us...

Here's an enjoyable Phish tune:

Do The Grateful Dead get bashed? Certainly not!

But Bobby probably does.

Reminds of a joke someone once told me:

What did the one Phishhead say to the other Phishhead when the acid wore off?


"Dude....this music sucks!"

You must be a young man. That's an old Dead joke.

New song “Pogo Sticks” see/hear if you can spot the 1973-1974 "Eyes" jam riff.

The band Phish announced today the release of a new album "Phish Phood" featuring new band members in what is considered to be some of their finest work to date.

Phish is an American rock band noted for its musical improvisation, extended jams, exploration of music across genres, and an adoring fan base. "Due to the excessive cost of touring we (phish) feel that the new band members will provide an interesting interpretation of our improvisational musical personation at a considerably lower cost."

Inspired by the emerging virtual web net-broadcast streams, Phish management feels this is the best way to efficiently and effectively communicate to our dedicated fan base.

In an experiment known as "The Rotation Jam", each member switches instruments with the musician on his left. On occasion a performance of "You Enjoy Myself" involved Gordon and Anastasio performing synchronized maneuvers on mini-trampolines while playing their instruments. Pogo Sticks is simply an evolution of this live stage theatrical performance.

Their new hit single "Pogo Sticks" has topped every jam band chart across America.

There's even an interview somewhere where Bob or Jerry tells that joke and cracks up.
